LEAP Testing Provides Hope for IBS Sufferers

Mediator Release Test that may help manage Irritable Bowel Syndrome
I met Jill Place when I was in Los Angeles. Jill has been a CAM practitioner for many years and is very knowledgeable in the fields of eating disorders, weight loss and addictions. I liked Jill immediately. She has a smile to light up any room and is one of the most upbeat people I ever met. I’m on her email list and she just sent me something about IBS that I’d like to pass on to anyone who might be suffering from this condition.
People are always asking me about what to do about Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), which is so common nowadays that it affects one in five Americans and accounts for one out of every 10 doctor visits. The most common symptoms include abdominal bloating, gas and the abnormal bowel discomforts of diarrhea and/or constipation. Doctors can control the symptoms with medication but, unfortunately, the medical model can’t seem to cure it. Not only that, the latest IBS drug, Zelnorm, has recently been recalled as it was found to increase risk of heart attacks, strokes, angina and death
I’ve been treating IBS alternatively quite successfully for 15 years with elimination diets and supplements. But I must admit that I’ve only been successful some of the time. Because there are lots of confounding issues such as food allergies that make IBS difficult to treat. And traditional food allergy testing, at best, fails to identify food sensitivities that may be making you sick. Until now.
Now there’s a better answer to IBS. The Mediator Release Test (MRT) identifies reactions to 150 foods and chemicals that are difficult to diagnose with any other test. It’s 94.5% sensitive and 91.7% specific, which makes it the most sensitive allergy test on the planet! And, coupled, with the LEAP elimination diet based upon the MRT results, it may end your IBS suffering once and for all!
One of my clients, who’s been suffering for years, found her symptoms cut in half TWO WEEKS after beginning the program. “I love not being sick!”, she said.
My contact info from Jill is no longer active but I did find some information about the LEAP Mediator Release Test
